macOS Ventura improves on the things you often do on the Mac, with powerful new ways to get more done, share and collaborate in your favorite applications, immerse yourself in next-level gaming and fully empower your other devices. macOS Ventura, introduced at WWDC 2022, is the most recent version of macOS, the operating system that runs on Macs. macOS Ventura is a substantial upgrade that brings a new multitasking experience, overhauls several programs, and adds improved platform features.
In June 2022, Apple announced macOS Ventura at the World Wide Developers Conference, showing the possibility that it could be Apple’s next-generation operating system for Mac. Now all developers and a public beta have been testing this new version for months, until the official release which is just around the corner.
The update offers a variety of new features, including upgrades to applications such as Safari, Mail, and Messages, as well as improvements to Live Text, Visual Look Up, and Dictation. MacOS Ventura gets a new multitasking interface called Stage Manager, a Weather app, a Clock app with an alarm clock, the ability to customize delivered iMessages, and much more. If you’ve been looking forward to installing macOS Ventura on your Mac, you’re probably wondering when macOS Ventura 13 will be available so you can prepare your Mac for the new version.
macOS Ventura release date in Australia
macOS Ventura is now available to registered developers and public beta testers. It will undergo beta testing for many months before releasing the official version to the public. After the WWDC presentation on June 7, macOS Ventura became available to registered members of Apple’s developer program, and the public beta was released on July 11. Apple first stated that macOS Ventura will be available to the public in the fall of 2022, with no specific date.
Based on the fact that Apple has released a beta update every Tuesday for the past month, we predicted that version 11 will be released on October 11 – which is exactly what happened. We now believe that the final version will arrive the week of October 17 – so macOS Ventura could release on October 18, perhaps accompanied by the release of new M2 Pro MacBook Pro and M2 Mac mini models, as well as an M2 Pro Mac mini .We can expect to release it at the end of October 2022. No official date has been released by Apple yet, but we can expect it by the end of October 2022.
